GNU GMP arbitrary precision limitations

P: n/a
Quick question, does anyone know what the limitations are, besides
memory for GMP, and also, if I write software that uses this library,
is it true that it may run differently on different hardware classes
of machines ? In other words, the same calculation on 1 machine would
have a different result than another machine would have ..

Thanks !

You seem to have mistaken comp.lang.c for a software support
forum. In fact, we only discuss the standard C language here.
Try one of the gnu.* newsgroups instead.

Try asking in one of the GNU groups. Third party libraries are
off-topic here.

You're the third person in 8 days to ask about GMP and be told it is
off topic. Why the hell didn't you read the newsgroup before posting?
It is rude to post to a newsgroup without lurking for a month or two
first.
